An Open Letter to the A&E Television Network

Dear A&E Television Network:

We were appalled to hear about your upcoming “reality” television series entitled “8 Minutes,” in which police-officer-turned-minister, Kevin Brown, deploys deceptive tactics to lure sex workers into a hotel room and then tries to convince them to leave their profession.

The concept and implementation of the show are troubling for a number of reasons. First, its deception treats these women as if they are not full human beings, worthy of respect and the right to make their own fully-informed decisions. You cannot have secured their consent to be filmed prior to luring them into the rooms, and this poses several ethical and legal concerns, while treating them like meat for mass consumption by TV audiences.

Second, you are literally putting their lives in danger. If they are being trafficked, this entire situation places them in danger of violence and abuse from those who are trafficking them. Not only that, but you are engaging them in an unwanted situation, and therefore your show is abusive in its own way. You are coercing these women into a situation they did not ask for, which is a form of trafficking for the purpose of television entertainment. Shame on you.

  • It is a reality show. Nothing about it is real. If it was actually real, they wouldn’t get enough signed releases to have a show.

  • They did get signed releases. To back up getting no one to “talk” – they got them arrested on prostitution charges. Then one woman they even threatened to deport her if she spoke after they got her arrested. The media wasn’t revealing the story because they were told that this woman would be deported and lose her kids if they did. They got Kathryn Griffin who runs a program in Texas to lie for the promise of giving her “credit” on the show – and then screwed her over after she sold out the women who should have been consulting an attorney. I had to wait until I had all the proof in black and white. I’m releasing the proof now. The tape of the call will be released once I can translate the tape off my phone. You can read more at http://www.facebook.com/sexworkersanonymous.com A copy of the letter I sent A&E’s attorney is on my wall there.

  • Correction – they took down my facebook page just now. I’ll see what I can do to post it on my blog page. You can email me if you want a copy in the meantime.

  • PS – Cupcake Girls – putting up comments on a porn blog accomplishes nothing. I’ve been after the District Attorney’s office to shut down the show. Letters? They laugh about posts like this over coffee. I however have been fighting them a lot longer than you and know how to go up against them and WIN. I offered to meet with you to discuss this before the show aired – and you refused to meet with me. So save looking like you give a shit now once the camera is on you. When it was the time I was fighting for these women, for us, and to not have the show aired – your group refused to even meet me for coffee to see if you could actually help.

    • Be careful of the men in black SUVs driving past your house real slow.

      • Don’t laugh – we past that stage long ago. Now they’re doing things like leaving gas cans on the front porches of our members, or even going right into their cars and homes and removing all SWA literature and flyers. This is not just “me” that’s experiencing these things – but many of us. Most of whom are trying to keep their past in sex work private – so they don’t want to speak about this openly. So they ask me to speak up for them. Mostly the minute anyone identifies as a member of SWA or speaks anything positive about me online – they’re met with a phone call shortly after by someone “nicely” warning them about how they are going to find themselves “shunned” and out of work, etc. if they don’t retract the statements. One woman told me she wasn’t going to be scared or intimidated – and she refused to retract her statements online. I then witnessed them totally slam into her online and chased her right out of more than one group online. Then she got fired. Doubt it happens? Try it. I dare you. Try running a positive article about us – and you’ll see what they do. They passed the “driving past” with the black SUV’s in 2009 when a black SUV owned by a Metro officer’s wife ran my daughter down in broad daylight crossing the street to call for AAA after my car had been trashed after an article came out about us in City Life. Her back was broken in three places and she had to be in a full body cast for months. The driver claimed my daughter was “outside of the cross walk” and they ticketed her. Her insurance company put a lien on her lawsuit for repayment of her medical bills – and she wound up with nothing for a settlement. She lost her senior year of school behind the car mowing her over. If you doubt me this is true – try me. Try running a positive article about us and you see the phone calls you’ll get. Or worse. This whole “Cupcake Girl” is a new version of the “snitch”. They are not honor bound by law to keep any confidentiality. They’ve even used cupcakes and flattery to worm their way into a hospitality booth at the AVN. However, I’m hearing a very different story about what is happening to the information they’re gathering. Keep in mind that Internal Affairs in Las Vegas is run by the head of Vice – kind of like the fox putting in charge of guarding the chicken coop don’t you think? A promotion she got after Operation Dollhouse – where 24 women we had been trying to get out of a trafficking operation were sent back home with the pimps in order to sweep under the rug the two cops’ who just “accidently” happened to be in the home during the surprise raid we helped media to stage because we weren’t able to get inside that home to rescue those women any other way. So just keep in mind that if a member of this “Cupcake Girls” gets slapped with a warrant or subpoena to release any information they are aware of – they have no way of refusing this. All of our hotline people are ordained ministers so we can refuse any warrant or subpoena – which does come when someone is trying to escape a situation where they have police on the payroll – such as was proven over and over again in cases like the G Sting arrests in Vegas. So don’t laugh – we passed the “driving by slow” stage when we had our mechanic tell us a bomb had been put in our outreach RV we were using to pick women up who wanted to leave working at the legal brothels because there are no cabs up there and it’s illegal for them to walk out on foot.

          • And this is why I realized people who retire from the industry have to get a different support group. Because the men can’t handle a woman who speaks her mind – instead of saying what he wants to hear to get his cash. The women all feel so hostile and insecure all they do is push away everyone who isn’t actively working. Leaving someone who has chosen to leave the industry because of assholes like this – needing to find other social networks. And here I thought you were mature enough to have an intelligent conversation with that didn’t revolve around someone’s dick. Guess you need more time. At least I was smart enough to know the 8 Minute show was fake to begin with, and that writing a letter in a porn blog they won’t even see is pointless. Plus smart enough to realize what the Cupcake Girls were really siding up to you all for – and it wasn’t to give you all free cupcakes!

        • Hopefully they don’t force you to write a suicide note in your mom’s shed, before they hang you, like they did for the whore wrangler who had Cheney and 1/2 of DC on her client list.

          If you are ever contacted by some petite, barely legal hookers in the NJ area, please forward their pix, rates, menu items available and contact info to me. Black and Anal should be prioritized.

          TY

          • And here folks is why I quit the industry. People exactly like you.

            Jody Williams April 18, 2015 11:05 pm 11:05 PM
          • Jody, Then kudos to people like him for getting you to go away

          • Jody outting herself as a white broad who was ignored by many potential johns because she wouldn’t go for the “trip to the isles” upsell money.

            Also, there is a high likelihood of “petite” being a trigger word.

            crunkleschwitz April 19, 2015 9:12 pm 9:12 PM
  • I was making too much money at home to want to go to some “isle”. I had over $250,000 in cash when I was arrested in 1984 – not bad for a 24 year old before the internet was born. Actually I was quite petite as I was an anorexic/bulimic at the time – just like the majority of sex workers also have eating disorders when they’re in the sex trade because latent queers like yourself tend to only like women who look like boys with plastic tits because they can’t get it up with real women. Real woman who don’t give them the time of day – so they pay. They surround themselves with working girls trying to get money out of them so they can feel they are being pursued – when in reality it’s their wallet being pursued. Oh yes it’s wonderful to be around real men these days where I don’t have to pretend to be an airhead because they’re so easily threatened by any woman who actually speaks her mind.

    • Well if you were bulimic and eroded away your gag reflex, I can understand how you earned a lot w/o renting out the fart hole.

      I am not a fan of bolt on tits. Lil tits are fine for me. 1) they usually come with a fine ass 2) there aint no hole in a titty to put my dick.
